Notable & Quotable: Obamacare's train wreck


“I just see a huge train wreck coming down."

That rosy outlook comes to us from Sen. Max Baucus, a senior Democratic senator who helped write President Obama's health care law.  Comforting, no?

The Washington Times has more:

Sen. Max Baucus of Montana, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, delivered his tough-love assessment of efforts to implement the Affordable Care Act during a budget hearing that featured Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

From the outset, the senator’s terse and pointed questions made it clear that he did not think her agency had done enough to implement key pillars of the law by 2014.

He also said he is “very concerned” by the lack of information among small business and accountants who are “throwing their hands” up over the law.

“I just see a huge train wreck coming down,” Mr. Baucus said. “You and I have discussed this many times, and I don’t see any results yet.”

Coincidentally, today's political cartoon from A.F. Branco relays a similar sentiment (via Legal Insurrection):
